Mizzou grad Stan Kroenke is actually paying for it, although I think there are a lot of partners.  Who the hell knows tbh.

The Buffalo Bills are making a swap at fullback.

The team confirmed they've cut Glenn Gronkowski and re-signed Jerome Felton.


Gronk, the younger brother of Patriots star tight end Rob, as well as Dan Gronkowski and Chris Gronkowski, signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent. Glenn Gronkowski made the Bills' initial roster over Felton but lasted just one game.

Baby Gronk played just eight total snaps in the Buffalo's Week 1 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Felton's return will upgrade the blocking from the fullback position in Greg Romanâ??s power offense ahead of the Bills' Thursday night tussle with the New York Jets.

The move to cut then veteran then re-sign him after Week 1 means Felton's contract isn't guaranteed, as it would have been had he made the initial roster.

So Gronk was just a pawn. Interesting.

I think it happens fairly regularly:  teams cut then re-sign.  Just another tool in the swiss army knife of salary cap manipulation.

So is that it for baby Gronk? Or do you we think he will land elsewhere?

Usually there is only one roster spot and cutting your guy midseason for an unknown would be risky.

To be fair, Gronk made it 8 more snaps than I thought he ever would. FB's are such a dying breed. Odds are against you in the NFL.

Idk exactly what the statistics are, but isn't the average, "time spent," in the NFL as a player less than three years or something?
